Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend

Finally started my challenge quilt today. It is due on Monday evening, so I have to work fast. It has to have a black background and 10 diamonds (shapes, rings, baseball diamonds, whatever). For me it became a Marilyn Monroe theme. I have done all of my applique, so now I am going to make the quilt sandwich and start the stitching. The fun part! Hope I finish it in time!

More Snow!!

I can't belive we are getting more snow! Thank goodness my husband and son do all of the shoveling. But I am feeling bad for the deer and the birds. Will they die of starvation? I had seen a small piebald deer in my backyard two weeks ago, and I was looking forward to seeing him grow up. I hope he makes it throught this snow! I had never seen a piebald deer before, and at first I thought a baby cow was in my yard! Her picture is above.

I am still working on my Bloomin challenge quiltlet. I am working on the fairy now. Above is my 'before' pix; I will post another when I finish her.

Super Bowl and Bloomin Challenge

I am watching the Super Bowl and taking breaks to work on my Blomin Challenge for my guild, Friendship Stars in Gaithersburg, Md. I must admit I do not care for the fabric we are working with, so it is making it hard too be creative. Oh, well, it will be a learning experience. Here is what I have done so far. It still needs a lot of work.

Valentines Day

Here are 2 little quiltlets for Valentine's Day. I like the pink one best. The green one is being sent to my swap mate from Pat Sloans Sweetheart rock swap.,55.0.html

Snow, Snow and more Snow!!!
